FCTA to fast-track road markings, directional signs

As part of efforts to roads in the nation's capital easily navigable and safer, the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, has tasked the FCT Transport Secretariat to fast-track road markings and the installation of directional signs at major roads in the territory. 

The minister gave the charge when he embarked on a tour of the Transport Secretariat and its allied agencies. 

In keeping with his administration’s focus on service efficiency, Bello, while addressing the management tasked the secretariat on the urgent need for the modernization of the business process of the secretariat and its agencies.  

This, he said, is with a view to achieving a cutting edge, operationally efficient and technological sound operational architecture. 

Bello used the occasion to visit the dumpsite for impounded tricycles in Durumi, the Auto Pond and Recycling Plant in Gosa as well as the taskforce area command in Wuye, while directing the secretariat to digitalize the documentation of scrapped vehicles for efficient data management and accountability. 

He charged officers to always give owners of impounded vehicles enough chance to come forward to claim the seized vehicles before they are scrapped. This he said was necessary to ensure observance of Rule of Law. 

The minister challenged the management to be more innovative, financially prudent and resourceful in order to meet the demands of transportation.
